Part of the problem is you need a modified mountain bike to drive the back roads. A regular road bike won't do. And a regular mountain bike is too heavy and clunky.
I have an old Rocky Mountain with no shocks, front and back. I changed the tires to a narrower profile and keep them pumped hard. The bike rocks. But im pretty sure I'm the only cyclist in Ireland to figure this out.
